Summary

In this chapter, we have learned about some of the advantages of using the Features module to manage configuration between different environments of a Drupal site. The Features module generates modules and makes it easy to manage Drupal components, like our Recipe content type, between environments as version controlled code. This alleviates the necessity of duplicating the steps of manually configuring a number of Drupal components between sites, and as your development environment becomes more complicated and the number of Drupal components becomes more numerous, this will be a huge time saver.
